Battlefield 1 to add first female soldiers in new DLC

The upcoming expansion for Battlefield 1 is set to add female soldiers inspired by real events from the First World War.

‘In The Name of the Tsar’ is the next in a batch of several downloadable content packs planned for Electronic Art’s historical shooter.

Female soldiers weren’t particularly common on the front lines of the conflict, so it’s great to see DICE paying homage to a particular moment in history.

The woman featured in the expansion’s promotional art is a member of the 1st Russian Women’s Battalion of Death. It is unclear whether females will occupy the roles of each class across new maps and modes, though. Here’s hoping!

Battlefield 1’s first major expansion, They Shall Not Pass, was a solid addition to the base game. Here’s what we thought:

“Playing They Shall Not Pass made me immediately want to get back into Battlefield 1. It’s an excellent collection of maps that continues to show off DICE’s incredible ability to finely craft well-thought-through maps that allow for amazing moments.”
